Thomas Reese SJ: Ordain Women PERSPECTIVE - August 13, 2016 Jesuit Thomas Reese has an article at NCR about women being deacons - he opines that women should be able to be priests in the church as well. One will recall that Fr. Reese had been an editor at America magazine until he was forced to quit for being too open-minded. Here's a bit of his article about women as deacons and priests: Women deacons? Yes. Deacons? Maybe ...

Foreward to James Keating's recent book, The Heart of the Diaconate , acting in persona Christi Servi (i.e., in the person of Christ the servant)? If so, how does that factor into the discussion? Along the same lines as a papally-appointed commission studying the diaconate vis-à-vis women, I read something today that the next Synod may be on the subject of pastoral ministry with a focus on making the sacraments more available to the faithful, which is important given the seemingly ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2016/08/deacons-blogging-and-crimson-and-clover.html

If Deacons Can Do Everything a Lay Person Can Do, That's News to Me GOOGLING GOD - August 12, 2016 ... the laity. It's a big reason why I want to be a Deacon. I am unable to preach often and almost completely restricted from preaching on Sundays. True, deacons can baptize, but so can laypeople. I was baptized by a Sister of St. Joseph in the hospital when they thought I would die shortly after birth. That is why my middle name is Joseph. Baptisms by laypeople have always been recognized by the church. Again, necessity only. Not a regular preactice. True, ...http://www.googlinggod.com/2016/08/12/if-deacons-can-do-everything-a-lay-person-can-do-thats-news-to-me/

St. Lawrence, one of seven deacons who served under Pope Sixtus II, died on this date in 258 A.D. According to legend, he was "roasted" alive on a grill—but maintaining his good humor to the end, he is reputed to have said during his ordeal, "Turn me over. I'm done on this side." * * * * * And why was the Emperor Valerian so outraged as to require that the deacon's life be snuffed out?

St. Lawrence, Deacon and Martyr ATONEMENTONLINE - August 9, 2016 Saint Lawrence was one of seven deacons in Rome in charge of giving help to the poor and the needy. In fact, during the first centuries of the Church, the number of deacons for any bishop was limited to seven, following the precedent of Jerusalem. It was said of Lawrence that he was to Rome, what Stephen was to Jerusalem. When a persecution broke out, Pope St. Sixtus was condemned to death. As he was led to execution, Lawrence followed him weeping, ...http://atonementparish.blogspot.com/2016/08/st-lawrence-deacon-and-martyr.html

Momika, who is from Qaraqosh, noted how Aug. 6 marks the exact two-year anniversary since ISIS attacked his hometown, driving out inhabitants who didn't meet their demands to convert to Islam, pay a hefty tax or face death.

When Dialogue Is a Distraction CRISIS MAGAZINE - August 8, 2016 ... for the dialogue to remain open on the question of ordaining women to the diaconate. And there it is, that word, oft-used and little-understood: "dialogue." Those engaged in theological study or familiar with affairs within the Church often see this word employed in relation to matters that have been declared decided or closed; those who wish for a different outcome urge a continuation of "dialogue"—that is, they don't want the matter to be closed. We see this quite often with the ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/rfERj6kNPa4/when-dialogue-is-a-distraction

CREATIVE MINORITY REPORT - August 2, 2016 Wonder What They'll Recommend. #foregoneconclusion WaPo: In May, Pope Francis remarked that the Catholic Church should study whether women could be "reinstated" as deacons — a proposal that could introduce a role for women in the Catholic clergy that has been open only to men for centuries. On Tuesday, he made good on that comment, made last spring to a gathering of nuns. The Vatican announced the members of the new Commission for ...http://www.creativeminorityreport.com/2016/08/pope-francis-establishes-commission-on.html

Truthiness and the Pope's Commission on Women Deacons PERSPECTIVE - August 2, 2016 In the news: Vatican Announces Commission on Women Deacons Here's the prevalent truthiness version of this news: "our progressive reforming pope, wanting women to have equal opportunities in the church, has come up with the idea of a commission to study women now being deacons" .

Pope Appoints Commission to Study Matter Exhaustively Studied by Earlier Papal Commission NEW LITURGICAL MOVEMENT - August 2, 2016 ... suspect most of our readers have already seen elsewhere that the Holy See has announced the formation of a commission to study the question of women deacons . A member of Fr Zuhlsdorf's commentariat has very cleverly pointed out a statement by the Holy Father himself to the effect that the surest way to make sure a question remains unresolved is to appoint a commission. I noticed while Googling the matter that almost all of what is available on the internet about this matter ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/TheNewLiturgicalMovement/~3/KejNiw6Jaag/pope-appoints-commission-to-study.html

Women Deacons? A Matter of Authority CRISIS MAGAZINE - July 27, 2016 Pope Francis recently called for a commission to study the possibility of ordaining women to the diaconate in the Catholic Church. This might seem to be disturbing news because it suggests that the pope has opened up the possibility of ordaining women to the hierarchical and sacramental diaconate—a role which, throughout the history of the Church, has been expressly forbidden. However, since we know this pope likes to open up topics for discussion without any intention ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/dCpZYy6Tt9c/women-deacons-matter-authority

Just Who Are the Laborers? ASSOCIATION OF CATHOLIC WOMEN BLOGGERS - July 9, 2016 ... Sunday's Gospel "ask the Master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest" usually is interpreted to mean pray for more priests, deacons, and women and men religious. But look at the context of his words. Jesus is sending out seventy-two disciples. None of these followers are priests or consecrated religious and probably most of them won't be. Every person who believes in Jesus is called to labor for his cause. By our baptism we all assume the responsibility to ...http://associationofcatholicwomenbloggers.blogspot.com/2016/07/just-who-are-laborers.html

Pope Francis feigned anger and surprise over two-month-old reports that he has opened the door to allowing women deacons in the Catholic Church.

"They said: 'The Church opens the door to deaconesses.' Really? I am a bit angry because this is not telling the truth of things." Nice try, but his ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/myST/~3/x0SsEE2u8T8/francis-open-to-women-deacons.html

Journalists FR HUNWICKE'S MUTUAL ENRICHMENT - July 2, 2016 A friend linked me to an item in the Grauniad ... at which point I should pause to instruct non-British readers that the Guardian, the paper of the English liberal and libertine and laiciste elite, has traditionally been so full of misprints and errors that it is commonly and contemptuously called the Grauniad. The item in question informed us that in the Catholic Church Deacons can say Mass.http://liturgicalnotes.blogspot.com/2016/07/journalists.html
